Bishop’s Stortford Scout District are currently using funds generated from TheGivingMachine to support 5 Jamboree participants attend the World Scout Jamboree in Japan in 2015.
Since joining in November 2013, thanks to their supporters shopping online via TheGivingMachine, they have raised £357 – and it didn’t cost them a penny extra! Simon Carter, Scout Group Leader/Assistant Director – Marketing & Communications said “TheGivingMachine is generating just over £100 a month for the project and will probably be the single biggest source of funding over the 20 months of the project.”
“We are delighted to be able help young people to participate and contribute to such a significant international event” says Richard Morris, founder and MD of TheGivingMachine. Over 142 various scouting groups are already benefitting from TheGivingMachine across the UK – with a total of £15,626 raised to date so far.
